Since its founding 45 years ago during Berkeley's watershed Free Speech Movement, the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism has graduated more than 2,000 students. Alumni have gone on to win virtually every major industry award and to staff--and run--the country's top news organizations. Widely regarded as one of the country's best journalism programs, it is also one of the only remaining two-...year Master of Journalism programs in the United States and is the only graduate-level journalism program in the vast, publicly funded University of California system.
The School's core master's program enrolls approximately 120 students, while a new summer-only Journalism Minor serves another 300 undergraduates. Its Investigative Reporting Program routinely produces award-winning reports for national media outlets, and its UC Berkeley Advanced Media Institute (BAMI) offers certification courses in specialized training for mid-career professionals. In 2018, the School will launch a new commercial audio storytelling center.
